Don't Wait to Write - Your Pocket Writing Coach

A podcast to help you write more, worry less, and share your work with the world.

Hosted by writer Amber Petty (New York Times, Greatist, Bustle, Snooki's blog - jealous?), this show comes in three parts:

  • Mondays: 5-Minute Writing Exercise (you'll be shocked how much you can do in 5 minutes)
  • Wednesdays: Reframe & Relax ("meditations" to help you chill out your inner critic and take writing a little less seriously)
  • Fridays: Find Out (answers to listener questions, writing advice from years of experience, and ways to actively put your work out there)

Whether you're a freelance writer, a copywriter who wants to do more than figure out new ways to say "Buy Now", or a person who's always wanted to write but never gave it a shot, this show is for you! Each week, you'll write a little, gain a little confidence, and add new tools to your writing tool belt.

A writing tool belt is probably just a pen and a backup charger for your laptop, but you know I mean.
